“Unemployed In Greenland” founders are childhood friends Guy J Cohen and Roy Coopervasser, both natives of Israel. They started collaborating musically in their early 20’s, exploring a wide range of electronic music styles that later combined with their love of jazz, funk, rock, hiphop and disco to create their own eclectic approach.
Their collaboration turned into a long-distance partnership withCoopervasser’s departure to New York to study Music & Technology at the Sonic Arts Center at CCNY. At the same time Cohen joined the film scoring program at “Rimon” music school in Israel.
The duo’s passion for creating music together, however, was as strong as ever and they were determined not to let the geographical distance get in their way. They started using FTP technology and found that the physical gap was in many ways beneficial, allowing for session musicians hired both in Tel-Aviv and New York to collaborate and inspire each other.
In 2005 they established their own Music Production company – 7 Grain
) where they have been collaborating on producing music and composing for picture and commercials both in Israel
and in New York.
The album Perfect Confusion was produced during 2007-2010.
